Happy Desktop

Below is Keith Packard's wishlist for the requirement of Happy Desktop for Linux users (this is only X related, not the complete wishlist):
  • Fully Composited Desktop
  • No Tearing
  • Integrated Video, 3D, 2D, APIs
  • Flicker-free Boot
  • Fast User Switching
  • Hot-plug Everywhere
  • Lower Power
  • Faster. Everywhere.
  • Reducing Root Code
Some of them are on progress (some are finished), and the rest is still far to come, but yes, we are going to reach that milestone someday big grin
